Into The Mix -400 X 400-02

The fifth episode of Soundbreaking is all about the beat. If the vocal track is the heart of a song, the rhythm track—the beat—is its body. It is the sonic element that taps into the most primal part of us and makes us want to move. Highlights include:

  • Producers The Dream and Tricky Stewart talk about writing and recording Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”
  • The Disco Era: Chic, Donna Summer, and the Bee Gees
  • Post Disco: Blondie, Madonna and the sounds of the 80s

Keep coming to Into The Mix for more episodes!
